Great Britain vs Uruguay, Olympic Soccer: Open Thread

Team GB kicks off against Uruguay today at 2:45pm ET on NBC Sports Network and NBCUniversal Soccer Channel (as well as and the NBC Olympics Live Extra app).

Great Britain only needs a draw to qualify for the quarter-finals, but they face a Uruguay side that needs to win the match so they can qualify for the next round. Everything is on the line.

Team GB starting line-up: Butland; Taylor, Richards, Caulker, Bertrand; Ramsey, Allen, Cleverley; Bellamy (c), Sturridge, Sinclair.

Ryan Giggs is not starting.

Team GB’s women’s soccer team has already qualified for the quarter-finals after beating Brazil 1-0 yesterday. But can the men’s soccer team do the same?
